Description
This was an undergraduate student project by Sarah Boles for Tamara Hilmey's ARCH 341 course, Autumn 2005.
"The goal for this project was to create a symbiotic relationship between the system of housing units and the natural environment of the site. Water (rain or flood) is used to develop the plans and sections of the project as well as regulate the circulation of both public and private. A mesh system is used to create different levels of permeability based on the circulation of both people and vegetation. Places of public circulation become more solid while private circulation becomes more permeable. This system is also used to create a screen between public and private by wrapping up and over the individual housing units thus creating another circulation path for vegetation." - Sarah Boles
